The Bibliography has also been updated and reorganised and the Commentary includes discussion of critical works which have appeared since 1994. The book is published in a two-volume set. Volume One contains the Introduction and Texts. Volume Two contains the Commentary, Bibliography, Index to Bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The new electronic edition of the Exeter Book shows to what heights these developments have led, and to what extent a combined textual and visual representation of the manuscript has surplus value when compared to 'traditional' text or facsimile editions. To put it in plain words: once I started the DVD I was lost. Completely unaware of my surrounding I spent three hours without noticing that time had passed only to awake to the reality of everyday departmental life by a knock on my door. Bernard Muir and Nick Kennedy have given us a user-friendly, esthetically attractive, and all-encompassing facsimile-cum-edition of the text. The DVD provides crystal clear images of every page of the manuscript, side by side with the text.
